Who does Elena like to celebrate with?
Princess Elena told Mayra she loves to hang out and observe big events with her little sister, Princess Isa (short for Isabel); her cousin Esteban, the Chancellor of Avalor; and her abuelos, the Spanish word for "grandparents."
What is Avalor like?
While getting to Elena's kingdom of Avalor requires a great journey, she helped erase the distance between Houston and there by explaining what the land is like.
"Well, Avalor is very tropical. There's a lot of trees, and big oceans," Princess Elena said. "Plus, it's home to my family."
If you want to see Elena of Avalor for yourself, she also revealed to Eyewitness News that she often ventures away to Walt Disney World and Disneyland, where she loves to meet boys and girls from around the world.
